Description Tom 2007-06-10 18:18:28 EDT
Description of problem:I recently upgraded my system to Fedora Core 7. I was
running Xtide on FC6 without a problem, but now, when I run xtide, I get the
following output in the terminal, with no Xtide starting:

XTide Fatal Error:  CANT_LOAD_FONT
A font that is required by XTide does not appear on the system.
Perhaps there is an optional font package that you need to install.

Error details:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):Version 2.9.3
Release      1.fc7.1

How reproducible:start xtide in terminal window

Steps to Reproduce:
1.in terminal window, enter "xtide"
Actual results:xtide does not start

Expected results:xtide starts

Additional info:
Comment 1 Tom 2007-06-10 18:19:49 EDT
I believe the font is properly installed in my system, and I am not having any
font problems with any other application
Comment 2 Tom 2007-06-10 19:16:57 EDT
the above version and release info is for xtide.
Comment 3 Tom 2007-06-11 07:55:52 EDT
I received a reply from Dave Flater, the developer and Mamoru Tasaka, who must
have ported xtide for fc7 and Mamoru said:

"Would you try xtide-2.9.3-3.fc7? 
Currently the rpms are under: 
I explicitly added xorg-x11-fonts-base to Requires."

I removed xtide 2.9.3-1fc7 (which did not list xorg-x11-fonts-base as a
dependency) and installed xtide 2.9.3-3fc7 and it properly asked for
xorg-x11-fonts-base, which I installed and after a reboot, xtide works just
fine. The latest version, xtide 2.9.3-3fc7 needs to replace the current version
in the repositories for Fedora and Freshrpms. 
Once the new version is placed in the repositories, this bug can be closed.

What is the output of this command

rpm -qf `find /usr/share/fonts/ -name fonts.dir \
-exec grep -l -- '-misc-fixed-medium' '{}' \;`
